Manor House, Hampshire
The house was built in the early 20th Century and there had been limited alterations to the original structure. The present owners wished to carry out extensive refurbishment and provide a new master bedroom suite and swimming pool wing. Other buildings within the extensive grounds have been altered and refurbished for staff accommodation.
The house is arts and crafts in its origin and the elevations have been carefully fully restored. The new extensions install a sense of John Ruskin’s concept of ‘changefulness’. The East wing extension is sympathetic to the style and houses a large pool and changing rooms with guest facilities over whilst the west wing extension provides a large master bedroom suite. A new equestrian facility has been built with state of the art facilities for dressage including horse pool. The former pool house has been converted in to a two bedroom guest cottage and the existing estate houses have been refurbished. A feature lake has been constructed in the grounds.
